Teaser Tuesday - Nov 5

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
I look out, through the steamed-up window; through the mist hiding most of the view, but not all, no; there's not enough of it to hide the thick black smoke that pours out above the trees. Our trees.
Now there's a dramatic moment - Stef Penney's The Invisible Ones our book group book of last month. We had the discussion meeting last night and I think it was uniformly liked. A tale of the relationships between the Gipsy community and the surrounding community. A detective(?) story where things are not quite what they seem. Like her earlier book this is about isolated communities - though in a completely different context! Loved the telling of part of the story through JJ's eyes - a young gipsy. Here's the Guardian review.

This one of my favorite reads a couple of years ago. Glad your book club enjoyed it.
